Shorebirds Swing Card

 Hey everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend! I have another card to share with you using SweetStamps stamps. This week, challenge 184-Masculine Birthday has me heading for nature and the beach! I decided to create a swing card for a little something different. Directions on how to create this type of card can be found here on Splitcoaststampers.
For the central image, I used Sweetstamps Shorebirds 3011 on glossy card stock. I think this is the best way to get a beautiful sky with minimal effort and it turns out different every time! I used a spellbinders die to cut out the image and I left the image in the die while I cut out the image with a utility knife going along the inside of the die with my knife. This made the image a bit smaller so that there would be a card stock border for an added detail.

On the inside, I used SweetStamps Special Day 9114 sentiment on the left side with the same die set and created a place to write a personal note on the right. It's a straight forward and fairly simple card so I'll just leave you with a materials list and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I would like to thank SweetStamps for inviting me to be a guest designer this month! I had a blast creating challenge cards using some of their stamps and products. If you would like to read my blog post over at SweetStamps for this card, click here.
